The Parents' Part in School Work

W. E. HICKS, ASST. SUPT. OF SCHOOLS, CLEVELAND, OHIO

ON
NE of my good teachers frequently said that when he had a number of bad

boys to whip, he elected to take one at a time. The good parents differ so widely in their notions about the part that they should take in school work that I have usually found it wise to deal with them, one at a time; always being ready to adjust the treatment to the case in hand. Any rule that I made in this matter on Monday was usually broken the following day. Tact is an essential qualification for the teacher who expects to get along with a fair measure of popular success with the patrons of the average school. Not tact alone, but tact with honesty, courtesy, kindness, and forbearance. Parents are generally pretty well set in their views about school work and it is wise to listen to them with great care, but all the while have in mind that you are paid to give instruction to the children; you are holding a certificate that entitles you to be the judge of how best to do it; and true to your position you go quietly and earnestly about the task that educates the children, as you understand it.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that parents are not interested in school work because they do not visit the school. The great army of hardworking and sacrificing parents have reached the opinion--I do not know how or when—that they can play no higher part in the education of the children that they dearly love than that of providing for them and keeping them regularly in the schools. Every other part that the parent may take in school work sinks into insignificance when compared with this one. The mother who faithfully labors to send her children clean and well-clad every day to the public schools is not in want of any suggestions from you or me about the parent's part in school work. She outranks us all in her service in school work. Such a mother, as a rule, is willing to admit that the teachers know enough generally to teach, manage and discipline a school.

But fortunately there are some parents who do not patronize the school regularly, and those too, who are ready to take an active part in the work of the school in some matters. Perhaps they do not always act wisely, but for the most part they have good motives. They are willing to lend an ear to the complaints of children; discuss what is taught and how it is taught; attend to the grading of pupils; and in some cases are quite willing to give the teachers the advantage of their opinions of school work. And in this republic that cultivates free speech these conditions are as they should be, and teachers should accept the situation without irritation.
